Will wonders never cease? Sara Errani suspended for doping. Who woulda thunk it? The truly hilarious part was that the test she failed was taken on February 16, right after Daniela, who we recall was a last minute fill-in, thrashed her in Fed Cup. I guess whatever she might have used in the past was a bit more performance enhancing than this drug was.
I can't see Errani being showered with accolades for her career and her classiness when she calls it quits like Dani was.



Let's Go, Daniela!

It took long enough but it's finally happened. Lets be honest though, Errani's far from the only one. Both of the 2012 Roland Garros finalists have now been suspended for doping.



Daniela Hantuchova is right about everything.

I'm still around. You are fairly warned.
Last month, Aga Radwanska announced her retirement. I'm reminded that she was arguably Daniela's 2nd best doubles partner after Ai. And it triggered very pleasant memories of my first time seeing Dani play in person, a 1st round doubles in Miami in 2012. They won in the 10 point tiebreak. The best memory was two consecutive points in the 2nd set as their opponents were making a strong comeback. The first point was ruled good when it looked out to just about everyone. Daniela, who always talked about doubles being fun for her, but no matter what she said, she was highly competitive in her doubles, disagreed with the call loudly, sharply, and longly. The next point saw the return by one of the opponents land in almost the exact same place. Out! If I live to be 100 years old, I will never forget the death causing expression on our gal's face as she glared at the linesman who made both calls. Didn't say a word this time...didn't have to!



Let's Go, Daniela!
